Hello Planet Ubuntu!

This is my first post to Planet Ubuntu, so if goof up, please be kind :)

I'm Randall Ross, widely known as the Ubuntu Vancouver "Buzz Generator" and the Community Manager of the Ubuntu Vancouver LoCo.

I have been using Ubuntu on my personal computing equipment since 2006. Before that, I used a long string of GNU/Linux based distro's dating back to approximately 1996, and before that many UNIX variants. I am a strong FLOSS advocate and supporter.

Vancouver BC Canada? Remember the 2010 Winter Olympics? They were here! Want to find us? We're on the west coast of Canada. Ubuntu Vancouver LoCo is my main Ubuntu focus and it's enough to keep me *very* busy.

Ubuntu Vancouver LoCo is currently over 350 people. We meet 4-5 times a month, sometimes more. Our events are very diverse and fun: We organize parties (real ones), restaurant social events, presentations, and support events.

I believe in the need to fix Bug #1 quickly. I believe that Ubuntu represents the best chance we have to do that and even more. But, we have to hurry and we need to cross the chasm.

More to come...
